Ok new site. "about us" may not work. Do you think the images in the navigation work?

Nice layout and clean, professional design. To make things more interesting, I would definitely add rollovers to your navigation. I would like to see the final output when more image variety is added and the content is complete.

Great job.

Very cool site! I, too, think your menu would look better with some nice rollover images, maybe a light gray square backdrop on dark gray font. I have to say, the index flower image is really creative and fits the slogan to a tee! Good stuff.

very nice, though it took me a couple of seconds to spot the links. maybe you could change the colour. As other people have said, rollovers on the images would be nice

Will test it on my mac tomorrow, should be fine though. safari renders pages pretty much the same as firefox.

nice work

I think the little thumbnails of the images should be centered in relation to the fill size image. Also, some of the thumbnails didn't work right. I would check into it if I were you!

1. FLASH intro added (no need to have flash installed on PC)
2. Mouseovers added

Looking to better the flash intro any ideas? I am thinking parallel transparent bars moving across the Y axis? (will need action script cos I don’t know to this) See http://www.ozzu.com/flash-forum/actionscript-move-faded-bars-randomly-across-the-axis-t37154.html for related discussion about getting this script to work.

well, to be honest i have a confession to make...

I speak to myself, because the moment i saw that site i was saying to myself..."i like that"

I think the overall design of this site is very impressive. The white background with the green flowers which animates as you load the site up is just wonderful.

I cant fault you, definatly a site worth keeping an eye on in the future.

Well done!

Thanks.

If you go back to the homepage the preloader loads the first loop of the preloader animation even though the its loaded in your cache!

Code: [ Select ]
ifFrameLoaded ("end")
{
  gotoAndPlay ("start");
}
  1. ifFrameLoaded ("end")
  2. {
  3.   gotoAndPlay ("start");
  4. }


Anyone know the reson or a quick fix? I used the script from: http://www.smartwebby.com/Flash/Flash_s ... loader.asp

lorem ipsum dolor ... that's a text from TEMPLATES. I don't think you want the world to read gibberish Latin instead of your texts. Before you ask for reviews, maybe it's better to finish it :lol:

Anyway looks good.
Since I've come to that text, I don't know right now if you've made it or not. The idea with the blossoming flower is fantastic :P

Ive used generators like this before... :)

I like it. I think the links should be eaiser to see though. Light grey is hard to locate on white.
